PopRally is a series of events at MoMA and MoMA PS1 that serve as a gateway for young and diverse audiences to engage with the Museum. Led by a cross-departmental committee of Museum staff, PopRally produces dynamic programs including artist collaborations, performances, film screenings, and digital content that encourage new and experimental ways of engaging with modern and contemporary art.
PopRally invites you to the premiere U.S. performance of cyclo., the collaborative project of artist/composers Ryoji Ikeda and Carsten Nicolai. Since their collaboration began in 1999, cyclo.’s work—live performances, CDs, books, and ongoing research—has focused on their shared interest in the visualization of sound. In conjunction with MoMA’s first major exhibition of sound art, Soundings: A Contemporary Score, in which Nicolai is a featured artist, the duo will stage a performance entitled cyclo.id. In a multisensory and immersive concert experience, cyclo. will perform against a backdrop of vibrant, ever-shifting visuals generated through real-time sound analysis.
Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, and exclusive access to Soundings: A Contemporary Score, after Museum hours
Doors open at 8:00 p.m., performance starts at 9:00 p.m.
